Getting back to basics in an urban setting

Updates and progress on our modest little homestead

Its December and I have been working hard on getting the raised garden beds in. I need to find some good top soil and compost to fill the garden beds. You would think that finding dirt would not be difficult but I have not found it so. I keep calling around to find some good quality soil but no luck yet.
We use the tractor to dig a hole somewhere in the back of the property and relocate it into the garden but we now have a hole that fills with water every time it rains. Its not the best situation but we are working with what we have. It will be spring soon and I really need to get these beds filled.
I really need to start focusing on filling my compost with good quality organic material so that I can start producing my own good dirt!!
